Microsoft to host Microsoft Build 2021 from 25May 2021 to27May 2021. The developer conference will be held virtually, just like last year’s event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Microsoft Build is among the company’s largest events held annually, focused on developers. Microsoft also uses the Build to announce new updates to its services like Windows, Office, Edge, and more.
“Microsoft Build is where developers, architects, start-ups, and students learn, connect, and code together, sharing knowledge and expanding their skillset, while exploring new ways of innovating for tomorrow,” the Microsoft Build event page read.
Just like Apple’s WWDC, Build is an event where Microsoft engages with developers from all over the world. Perhaps the biggest attraction at the Build developer conference is the keynote event, where Microsoft typically its big software updates for its services and platforms, including Windows 10 operating system. At last year’s Build conference, Microsoft announced new features for its Teams collaboration platform, Project Reunion, and other updates. Build 2020 was a digital-only event.
Microsoft officials are trying to ramp up and engagement around Windows this year, after several years of not putting a lot of energy into and focus on promoting that business. So maybe Build actually will include new content that will highlight Windows 10X, Windows 10 21H2, and more. Recent Build events have focused heavily on Office, Azure, Power Platform, and IoT and to a lesser extent on Windows.
